  • 1571 Sir Amyas Paulet was appointed Governor – Tales and Music by Cally Noel
    10:00 am-4:00 pm
    2018.05.02

    Little did Amyas Paulet know that he was to serve Queen Elizabeth 1st for seventeen eventful years. During these changing times in Jersey he saw the arrival of the strict Calvinist religion from France, which issued innumerable acts against Sabbath-breaking – folk were not allowed to gossip, dance or play skittles, the punishment being a stay in the dungeons of Mont Orgueil Castle. He had to deal with the threat of invasion by the Spanish Armada and to top it all was appointed Mary Queen of Scots Gaoler in 1585.

    The year is 1194 and the focus of the church has moved from Jersey to Normandy and in the process downgraded the Abbey to a Priory. Louis has a choice thing or two to say about that. But he hopes Archbishop Thomas Becket will soon reconcile with king Henry and the Priory will flourish once more… Meanwhile he sings the praises of the Lord, records his thoughts on parchment, keeps the relics clean and prays for a better tomorrow

During these changing times in Jersey he saw the arrival of the strict Calvinist religion from France, which issued innumerable acts against Sabbath-breaking – folk were not allowed to gossip, dance or play skittles, the punishment being a stay in the dungeons of Mont Orgueil Castle. He had to deal with the threat of invasion by the Spanish Armada and to top it all was appointed Mary Queen of Scots Gaoler in 1585.

But he hopes Archbishop Thomas Becket will soon reconcile with king Henry and the Priory will flourish once more… Meanwhile he sings the praises of the Lord, records his thoughts on parchment, keeps the relics clean and prays for a better tomorrow

    The Mission:
    Young adventurers will need to seek out all the superhero animals at the Zoo and discover what their unique superpowers are. Each child will receive a mission booklet to complete, answering questions on the superpowers of each animal. Your mission will take you around the beautiful grounds, through the lush gardens and hidden pathways of the Zoo. Make sure you collect a sticker at each station!

    If you return to ‘mission control’ unscathed, with your booklet full of correct answers and stickers, you will be entered into the ‘SUPER’ prize draw for the chance to meet Henry Cavill, have a photo opportunity and receive a signed t-shirt.

    The Fun Element:
    In honour of our Ambassador, Henry Cavill, we ask that all Superhero Safari entrants embrace their inner Superheroes and come in fancy dress!

    Buggies and accompanying parents are welcome too, however skateboards and bicycles are not permitted.

  • 1571 Sir Amyas Paulet was appointed Governor – Tales and Music by Cally Noel
    10:00 am-4:00 pm
    2018.05.16

    Little did Amyas Paulet know that he was to serve Queen Elizabeth 1st for seventeen eventful years. During these changing times in Jersey he saw the arrival of the strict Calvinist religion from France, which issued innumerable acts against Sabbath-breaking – folk were not allowed to gossip, dance or play skittles, the punishment being a stay in the dungeons of Mont Orgueil Castle. He had to deal with the threat of invasion by the Spanish Armada and to top it all was appointed Mary Queen of Scots Gaoler in 1585.

    The year is 1194 and the focus of the church has moved from Jersey to Normandy and in the process downgraded the Abbey to a Priory. Louis has a choice thing or two to say about that. But he hopes Archbishop Thomas Becket will soon reconcile with king Henry and the Priory will flourish once more… Meanwhile he sings the praises of the Lord, records his thoughts on parchment, keeps the relics clean and prays for a better tomorrow

      10:00 am-4:00 pm
      2018.05.16

      Little did Amyas Paulet know that he was to serve Queen Elizabeth 1st for seventeen eventful years. During these changing times in Jersey he saw the arrival of the strict Calvinist religion from France, which issued innumerable acts against Sabbath-breaking – folk were not allowed to gossip, dance or play skittles, the punishment being a stay in the dungeons of Mont Orgueil Castle. He had to deal with the threat of invasion by the Spanish Armada and to top it all was appointed Mary Queen of Scots Gaoler in 1585.

      The year is 1194 and the focus of the church has moved from Jersey to Normandy and in the process downgraded the Abbey to a Priory. Louis has a choice thing or two to say about that. But he hopes Archbishop Thomas Becket will soon reconcile with king Henry and the Priory will flourish once more… Meanwhile he sings the praises of the Lord, records his thoughts on parchment, keeps the relics clean and prays for a better tomorrow

    JAKE BUGG biography
    Raised on a steady diet of the Beatles, Bob Dylan, Jimi Hendrix, and the brothers Gallagher, English singer/songwriter Jake Bugg blends the melodious, working-class swagger of the La’s and the primal, bluesy simplicity of the White Stripes with the wry, weathered romanticism of Jens Lekman. Born in Nottingham, Bugg picked up the guitar at the age of 12, and within a year he was composing his own songs. Disinterested in the hip-hop and grime that dominated the listening habits of his peers, he turned to the classics for inspiration. Bugg’s first brush with recognition came at the age of 17, when a local DJ began spinning one of the cuts he uploaded to BBC Introducing, a program that supports “unsigned, undiscovered, and under-the-radar musicians.” An invitation to play Glastonbury arrived shortly thereafter, and before he knew it, he was supporting acts like Lana Del Ray, Example and Michael Kiwanuka, and had inked a deal with Mercury. His first single, “Lightning Bolt,” arrived in early 2012, while his debut, the eponymously titled Jake Bigg, appeared in October of the same year and featured production work from former Snow Patrol collaborator Iain Archer

  • Patrick Monahan- Rewind Seclector 90s
    8:00 pm-10:00 pm
    2018.05.18-2018.05.19

    Patrick Monahan compares life as an Irish/Iranian teenager in 90s Cool Britannia to today’s Teen Brexit Britain. Rewind Selector 90s is about identity, fitting in and enjoying the decade. ‘Drink and drugs and rock n’roll’ was the trademark saying of the 1990s but for the tea total and drug free Monahan it was ‘cake and tea and R n’B!’
    Monahan explores what life was like for teenagers in the 90s growing up with basic technology, unlike teenagers today who are growing up with technology that’s more powerful than a NASA space ship in the 1960s! He compares the current problems teenagers face, such as faulty phone charger leads, dabbing and whether they should Instagram their dinner or just eat it!

    2018.05.23

    Little did Amyas Paulet know that he was to serve Queen Elizabeth 1st for seventeen eventful years. During these changing times in Jersey he saw the arrival of the strict Calvinist religion from France, which issued innumerable acts against Sabbath-breaking – folk were not allowed to gossip, dance or play skittles, the punishment being a stay in the dungeons of Mont Orgueil Castle. He had to deal with the threat of invasion by the Spanish Armada and to top it all was appointed Mary Queen of Scots Gaoler in 1585.

But he hopes Archbishop Thomas Becket will soon reconcile with king Henry and the Priory will flourish once more… Meanwhile he sings the praises of the Lord, records his thoughts on parchment, keeps the relics clean and prays for a better tomorrow

How did they know what was going on in the outside world?

    5:30 pm-7:00 pm
    2018.05.29-2018.06.23

    Paris. May 1968. Student protests and massive general strikes spread and immobilize the whole country. Sometimes violent, complex and idealistic, these events have shaped French society for decades afterwards. To mark the 50th anniversary, Alliance Française de Jersey presents an original exhibition of photographs by photo reporter Philippe Gras. From Sorbonne University to street barricades, this exhibition offers an insight into a major event of French contemporary history.

    The preview will be followed by the screening of a documentary , ‘May 68, a Strange Spring’ (Dominique Beaux, 105 mins). With testimonies of key players who lived those events (police, politicians and students), this film redraws May 68’s chronology and analyses its impact on French society.

    The film will be screened at 7pm in the Marie Ritchie Room and in French with English subtitles. Free admission.

    This exhibition is organised by Alliance Française de Jersey, with the support of l’Association des Amis de Philippe Gras, Institut Française and Jersey Arts Centre.

How did they know what was going on in the outside world? The walk takes you along past occupation relics on country lanes up to the high woodland area of Les Gellettes which had lain undisturbed for 60 years – until Channel Four’s Time Team came to excavate in the spring of 2010.  You will see the original trenches and gun emplacements built by the occupying forces and hear all about the excavations, before finally ending up at the famous Jersey War Tunnels.

  • 1571 Sir Amyas Paulet was appointed Governor – Tales and Music by Cally Noel
    10:00 am-4:00 pm
    2018.05.30

    Little did Amyas Paulet know that he was to serve Queen Elizabeth 1st for seventeen eventful years. During these changing times in Jersey he saw the arrival of the strict Calvinist religion from France, which issued innumerable acts against Sabbath-breaking – folk were not allowed to gossip, dance or play skittles, the punishment being a stay in the dungeons of Mont Orgueil Castle. He had to deal with the threat of invasion by the Spanish Armada and to top it all was appointed Mary Queen of Scots Gaoler in 1585.

  • Canon Louis
    10:00 am-4:00 pm
    2018.05.30-2018.09.26

    Canon Louis is a member of the Augustinian Order. He is one of 6 holy men scraping out an existence in the former glory of The Abbey of St Helier.

    The year is 1194 and the focus of the church has moved from Jersey to Normandy and in the process downgraded the Abbey to a Priory. Louis has a choice thing or two to say about that. But he hopes Archbishop Thomas Becket will soon reconcile with king Henry and the Priory will flourish once more… Meanwhile he sings the praises of the Lord, records his thoughts on parchment, keeps the relics clean and prays for a better tomorrow
